Let’s cut to the chase, Snoop Dogg is definitely living his best life. Snoop Dogg has put aside the tedium of working as a multiplatinum musical artist in order to take up the heavy mantle of professional toker. It’s difficult work, but someone has to do it. As toker in chief, Snoop has taken up various products, which yours truly has joyously reviewed. Some of it is good, some of it is great, and some of it is so low quality that one is forced to acknowledge that there is simply no way a toker of Snoop’s tax bracket has ever used it. Let’s take a look at what Snoop’s Dogg Pound’s Mothership has to offer.

Product Pros

  1. Incredible diffusion
  2. Heavy base
  3. Solid construction

Product Cons

  1. Percs are underwhelming
  2. Difficult to clean

Build Quality

When a celebrity endorses a piece of glass I tend to expect three things: poor build quality, unimpressive features, and unreasonable pricing.

In fact the Snoop Dogg G-Pen, suffered from all three issues when it was first released.

Luckily it seems Mr. Dogg has learned from his endorsement shortcomings with this piece by avoiding at least 2 of these issues entirely.

This water-pipe is extremely well made, the delicate pieces are reinforced, and secured through various anchors. The base is incredibly heavy, making for a piece that can be hit standing up as well as sitting down.

I was genuinely surprised at the quality level. This piece is solid enough to be filled with water and then set down… anywhere.

Smoke Quality

Smoke Quality

The smoke quality of this piece is simply incredible. The diffusion is world-class, and unless you currently have a piece with this level of diffusion, I assure you that you are missing out. The smoke building in the chamber in tiny spirals as the downstem sends the smoke diffusing through the water.

The chamber is perfectly sized ensuring big, lung-clenching hits without leaving an oversized chamber half full of smoke. Though I am the sort of smoker who thinks every piece is improved by an ice-catcher, this one still delivers smoke cool enough to avoid arousing my ire. A less experienced smoker may find that this smoke is still a little more harsh than they desire.

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

This is the category where this piece really shines. Unlike many celebrity pieces, this piece of glass more than earns its lofty endorsement. This piece of glass is strikingly solid, and surprisingly heavy. Instead of relying on stickers or logos for attention, this piece simply radiates quality.

Instead of leaning on its name, this glass draws your attention with extremely high quality, incredible detailing, and features that are difficult to find anywhere else. Though this is definitely a complicated piece, I didn’t worry about setting it down, cleaning it, or passing it around a mixed crowd (experts and amateurs).

It required no extra care, no watchfulness, and no anxious instruction about how to hit it without breaking it. The packaging is… strangely beautiful. Which sounds odd, I know. Who’s ever been impressed by the packaging of a water pipe? That sort of styling is for smartphones and laptops, right? Wrong.

We are in a new era, my friends, and in this new era, you should expect to enjoy unboxing a new waterpipe just as much as you enjoy unboxing a new phone. Welcome to the future.

Ease of Maintenance

Ease of Maintenance

When your net worth is almost $200 million, cleaning glass doesn’t really matter. I’m pretty sure Snoop employs someone to clean his glass, and on their days off, he probably just throws his dirty glass away. The rest of us are not so privileged. This piece is singularly nightmarish to clean.

I have rarely dealt with a piece so impossible to clean. The root of the issue is most certainly the (absolutely wonderful) diffused downstem. I have spent hours with salt and alcohol, and still, it is not clean. This is the sort of piece which looks quite unpleasant when dirty, so I have to figure out a way to clean it… and yet… I’m tempted to simply… not.

Those who insist upon making this purchase should invest in commercial cleanser. That is the only way you should ever expect to get this piece completely clean.

Conclusion

This is a high quality piece which is slightly overpriced. If you are a Snoop Dogg fan who lacks a quality small water pipe/ large bubbler, I would advise you make this purchase immediately. If you are the sort who is willing to pay a bit extra for a logo or a brand, this is definitely a piece which will allow you to satisfy your desire for brand recognition while still delivering the level of quality you expect from the price point. As a fan of Snoop Dogg, and a perpetual supporter of all those who have turned toking into a profession, I would buy this piece on principal alone.

If you are looking for something similar but one that does not come with the celebrity inflated price tag check out the Jane West Beaker or HiSi Hexagon Review.
